Tuesday (17th September 2019) will see The Shrimps Host Darrel Clarke’s Walsall Side in what will be a Interesting game on the Lancashire Seaside Coast.
The Shrimps will go into this game hoping for their first home victory of the season, making it their second so far. In their last game, Jim Bentley’s side suffered a 3-0 to a very poor Scunthorpe side, goals from Proctor, Van Veen & Lund, saw the Shrimps off in what was a very one sided affair In North Lincolnshire.
Also the Saddlers will be going into the game hoping for their second victory of the season. In their last game they suffered a 1-0 defeat to a very in-form Bradford City side, an own goal by Kinsella made sure that the Bantams took three points in the Midlands.
Last time The Shrimps faced the Saddlers was back in 2015 in the first round of the JPT (now known as the Leasing.com trophy). Jim Bentley’s side managed to see off the Saddlers in what was a 2-0 comfortable victory for the Shrimps, goals from Jamie Devitt and Tom Barkhuizen secured the shrimps a place in the next round of the JPT.
Both sides have had an equally poor start to the 19/20 League Two campaign:
Morecambe P8 W1 D3 L4
Walsall P8 W1 D3 L4
With both sides only winning one fixture this season, this will be one very interesting affair at the Globe Arena.
